Verizon Communications enV2 Cellular Phone Logo
Posted on Nov 25, 2008

Env2 flip screen (the keyboard screen) blacked out, but...

The screen that you flip up in the enV2 blacked out this morning. I've only had it since August 2008 and haven't dropped it once on hard/rough surfaces (dropping my phone on beds and carpet don't count, I don't think.) The front screen works fine, and did not black out. The sound works fine, and I assume that all other functions are fine.

Help please?

    Yes, I have the same exact problem. This has happened to me twice. I dropped it on a stone floor at my friend's house and the inside screen blacked out, while the outside screen worked just fine. I spent about ten minutes absolutely freaking out and texting every single one of my friends using the front screen and telling them I broke my phone. Then, it spontaneously decided to fix itself. This happened last Saturday. Then, today (Thursday) I dropped it in the locker rooms at school and it broke again. It has not fixed itself as of yet. Please help! I love my phone, but this really sucks! I'll be going to Verizon Wireless as soon as I can, but I'm not sure if the warranty covers this and if it doesn't, I know my parents aren't going to pay to get me a new one or get it fixed):

  • babigirlusa1 May 25, 2009

    I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM! i'm thinking that the enV2 isn't that great of a phone. all my friends have the enV2 and they either have problems with the charger, the "ok" bottom on the outter keyboard, or they're inner screen is flashing. Me? i have all 3 problems and my parents won't buy me another 500$ phone. so.... WHAT TO DO?

Walk outside with your phone in hand. with one hand, hold the phone firmly. with the other, grab a baseball bat. step out into your yard, or maybe the yard of a neighbor you don't like. throw the phone straight up in the air, then grab the bat handle firmly. swing away at that bad boy. fetch the phone and repeat the process if you are not fully satisfied with how your phone functions after one whack. hope this helps

It is the wiring in the hinges of the phone. Call it built in obsolescence. Companies se to provide the verizon store with parts, but seem to have more value for your money that servicing the consumer. Im sure you could fix the phone hinge if you are persistent. P2TP

I dropped my env2 cant see anything phone still recieves messages

Hello,

The problem with your phone is just flex problem, the flex on the screen of your phone is weak or worn out, this is a common problem among slide or flip phone.

What you need to do is to replace the flex on the screen of your phone, you can get this done by going to any local phone repairer within your vicinity to help get it fix or replace.

Once the flex is replace, your phone display problem is solve and the screen will start displaying.

Take care.

My env2 is like broken.

the black screen with the rainbow is a clear indicator that you've cracked the internal screen.
Not fixable unless you replace the screen.
